Making Sense of Past Time is the story of a young man’s attempt to escape the boredom of his provincial hometown. Harry’s memoir chronicles his struggles leaving Georgetown, Guyana for the big-city life of London. He reveals his difficulties finding employment and housing in the environment of racial discrimination in Great Britain during the early 1960s.
Life in London was not everything he had hoped it would be. From “living on the dole” with his weekly allowance from the Employment Exchange to “beating the tube” and learning to shoplift with a rough crowd, Harry’s journey is an exciting tale of perseverance.
Follow Harry as he travels through Great Britain and Sweden, meeting interesting people and suffering through some challenging times. This ultimately heartwarming saga is full of humour, youthful passion, and dreams, and allows a glimpse into the British class system and the social lives of working-class London.
BIOGRAPHY I was born in Guyana, moved to England in the early sixties. I worked and studied in London. Residing in Sweden since the beginning of the seventies. I retired a few years ago from a mental health occupation and from a private counseling practice.
The seventies, I began writing, wrote mostly short stories, a four-act closet drama, a few novellas, and an unfinished biographical novel, and had spent two years nurturing the ambition to become an author of some repute. But financially the going was tough, as well as the feeling of insecurity for the future. I worked as a hospital porter for some years. I received a BA (Eng. & Ed.). Unfortu.nately, my interest in writing faded until a couple of years ago.
In Feb (2016), I self-published my debut book a collection of two short stories and two novellas, Strangers In Another Country, available only as an e-book.
In December 2016, I self-published a novella The Eternal Struggle: An Amorous Story, in ebook format and paperback format.
Getting it Right, if Ever - a Romance Novella will be available 22nd Aug 2019
